I have a very good friend who is an extremely talented cardmaker.  Karen -- you are awesome!  We had a fabulous visit recently and she gave me this gorgeous card, using the Pathfinding paper pack and the "You mean the World to Me" stamp set.

I love how she combined small pieces of different papers in the kit and the green dots just add the right pizzazz.  The stamp is so simple, but so meaningful.  It's just an awesome card.  Thank you Karen!  You can see more of Karen's work at Karen's Creations.

THANK YOU to Sue Taylor Hill of "Gert's Goods" for nominating me for this hop.  It's a little different than other hops that I've participated in, and I'm happy to be included.

This Creative Blog Hop is a way to have an ongoing, never-ending hop that introduces you to other creative crafters and broaden our list of blog artists. 

Here's a little bit more about me:

What am I working on now?
Right now, I'm working on catching up.  Unfortunately, I've had some health challenges so I've lightened up my schedule and commitments.  That means I have more time now to do some crafting.  I will be working on some more Workshop on the Go kits, some colouring and lots of thank you cards.
 How does my work differ from others in my genre?
Whenever I make something, I unconsciously look for that teachable moment.  I love to share new things with friends and customers, so I'm constantly trying new things to see if they work.  If they do, I share, share, share.  If they don't, I share that too, so that others can learn from my mistakes.

Why do I create what I do?
I have always been a creative person and whether I'm scrapbooking, making cards, writing or doing something else creative, it's a way for me to get the stress out and bring more happiness in.

How does my creative process work?
LOL.  What creative process?  I don't really have a process that I follow for every project.  Sometimes it's a stamp that inspires me, or sometimes paper.  And sometimes, it depends on the purpose, like needing a card or a special gift.  Unlike many other areas of my life (where I like to control things), when I'm being creative, I'm more of a "go with the flow" kinda gal.

Hope you learned a bit about me today and I would like to introduce you to the next Blogger! 

Introducing Christine Robertson

I love to scrapbook period! Anyway I can. I am a traditional and digital scrapbooker. 

I am a mother of two, Hannah (17) and Maks (13). I have a wonderful husband, Brian who I have been married to for 18 years. We live in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. 

I have a wonderful family that I love to take pictures of and spend time with. They all love to see the moments of their life come alive on the page. They fully support my love and passion for telling the story. I have always loved pictures ever since I was young and have always loved adding the story to the photo, even before I knew that it was scrapbooking. But I have been scrapbooking in the traditional sense of the word since our son was born in 2001, now going on 13 years. 

Once I found a place to put the stories and the photos together in a meaningful way I was hooked!

Fall officially arrived last week, but here in Toronto, we've experienced some wonderfully warm summer temperatures.  Never fear, we know they won't last.  Especially if all of the leaves that are changing colour are any indication.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving in just a few weeks, followed by Halloween -- which is one of my favourite holidays.  Stews and soups, chilis and of course, turkey, the foods of Fall are so warm and filling in my tummy.  Plus all the family time and reasons to celebrate.

And Pathfinding is perfect for this time of year.  We're finding our way through this season and heading towards winter.  But let's take some time -- don't rush to the snow and the Christmas carols.  Stop and jump in a leaf pile.  Take a walk in the cool air.  Whatever you do, try not to rush down the path towards the end of the year.  Time goes too quickly as it is.

Here is the first layout from the Pathfinding Workshop on the Go.  I added some different things, like sequins, sparkle twine and Base & Bling charms just to boost this already robust layout.
